The 20th annual Capen Garden Walk will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, July 17-18, rain or shine. This is a free self-guided tour of about 60 private gardens and carefully nurtured public spaces in the neighborhoods surrounding the University at Buffalo South Campus. In addition, some of the private gardens will be open for “Capen by Night” from 8-10 p.m. Saturday, July 17.
The Capen Garden Walk is designed to encourage neighborhood beautification and collaboration as well as to build strong communities. It is named for Samuel P. Capen, the first full-time, salaried chancellor at the University at Buffalo. The Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk began in 2002 with 24 gardens, in an effort to showcase the neighborhoods near the University at Buffalo, including University Heights, Eggertsville, Amherst and the Town of Tonawanda.
Maps for the walk will be available at the UB Anderson Gallery, 1 Martha Jackson Place, Buffalo (between Montrose and Englewood Avenues) until 4 p.m. both days. Free parking is available at the gallery. Maps will also be available to download at ourheights.org/gardenwalk after July 14.
